Speaker stands are an excellent way to bring your speakers up to a suitable height for optimal sound quality. However, it’s important to consider a few key aspects before buying.
Weight rating, construction materials, top plate construction, base and feat, height and cable management capabilities should all be considered when choosing a stand for your speakers. Ignoring these aspects can lead to buyers remorse, or worse, damaged speakers.
